Former President Bill Clinton is in Marion Sunday, taking on critics of his wife's support of a federal gas tax holiday this summer.

Clinton says Barack Obama and other critics of Hillary Rodham Clinton's energy policy don't have to choose every day between buying health care and buying gas. He says no one can convince him that the relief wouldn't help a lot of people.

Both Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Sen. John McCain have both proposed suspending the levy from Memorial Day to Labor Day as a way of providing relief from record gasoline prices for consumers.

Obama opposes the plan, saying it would save a mere 30 cents a day and cost thousands of construction jobs.

Bill Clinton also planned stops today in Morganton, Lenoir, Newton, Kernersville and Reidsville.

On Monday, President Clinton will meet with voters in Elizabeth City, New Bern, Jacksonville, Roxboro, Henderson, Louisburg, Zebulon, Smithfield, and Raleigh.

Hillary Clinton will also be in North Carolina Monday, attending "Get Out the Vote Events" in Greenville and High Point. Both events are free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

On Friday, she attended events in Kinston, Hendersonville and Greensboro.

Later in the day, Hillary spoke at the North Carolina Jefferson Jackson Dinner in Raleigh.

On Saturday, she visited Wake Forest, Gastonia and Mooresville.

In additon, Chelsea Clinton also returned Friday to campaign for her mom at Salem College in Winston-Salem and Lexington.
